If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the North Wales Branch.
There is a very useful site about butterflies and moths in North Wales called North Wales Lepidoptera.
Species to look out for
In July 2018 Prime Minister Theresa May announced that the Government would bring forward an Environment Bill. Butterfly Conservation (BC) understand that Defra are working on the draft of the Bill, to cover England and reserved matters in devolved countries, and this will be published before Christmas.
One of Europe’s most threatened butterflies has been discovered breeding on a site in Carmarthenshire where it has not been seen for more than 50 years, Butterfly Conservation (BC) can reveal.
Scientists have discovered that moths may play a much broader role as plant pollinators than previously suspected.
Numbers of one of the UK’s best known garden butterflies have plummeted this summer despite the record-breaking hot weather, results from the Big Butterfly Count have revealed.
There are currently no events scheduled for this area. Events are mostly held during the summer months and are arranged in the early spring.

Whether you want to volunteer at a local branch, get outside and help manage our nature reserves, or help with one of our events, we have something for everyone to get involved in! Your time can make a real difference.
